I was just offered a really cool visual designer role. It’s a great opportunity for me to learn more and do more of what I like to do.
The salary offered was lower than my current salary, so I politely mentioned this when I was called about the offer.
My potential manager did not seem mad at all about this and quickly discussed it with the other partners. Within two hours I had a revised offer letter with a 15% higher salary, and they still sound very enthusiastic.
For some reason, because I am not used to negotiating/talking money, I still think this may sour an employers impression of you. Do any of you have experience with this? Think it’s just part of doing business?
